Windows 10X shown running on a smartphone – and it looks pretty cool

Microsoft’s vision for the future of Windows is to design the
operating system for all form factors whereby features can be
tailored specifically to the device posture the software will
be running on.

This project was originally known as Andromeda OS and it was
supposed to be focused on mobile devices, such as phones and
tablets. The plans changed in 2018 when the idea of a
mobile-focused OS with more cross-platform capabilities was
shelved by the company, and the decision was made to turn the
dual-screen phone into an Android device (Surface Duo).

Some of the work moved to other things and Microsoft started
focusing on Windows 10X, which is based on modular
Windows Core OS.

We have already seen a video of the near-final build of

Windows 10X running on Surface Pro 7. In the latest feat,
developers have now successfully
ported the operating system to a mobile device – showing
how Windows 10X works on a small screen device with a
touchscreen.

Developers were able to get Windows 10X up and running on the
Lumia 950 XL successfully, thanks to its adaptive user
interface.

Of course, Windows 10X on mobile still needs a bunch of fixes,
but the experiment confirms that Windows Core OS-based
software is being able to adapt the user interface depending on
the form factor and type of input it is attached to.

The ultimate idea is just to have one version of the OS with
components which are fully adaptive so that it can run on any
device with little modifications.

At any rate, Windows Core OS is obviously a sensible direction
for Microsoft to be heading in, and it could finally make the
operating system modular.

According to reports, the first incarnation of Windows 10X and
Windows Core OS is focused on single-screen devices and
Microsoft is planning to add dual-screen support next year. Of
course, expecting new smartphones running this OS in 2021 would
be wildly optimistic.
